Gift Guide: The Art of the Matter

Gifts of art, art books and museum memberships will get you a heartfelt thank-you card. Treat yourself, too. Take in an exhibition and browse the galleries before you tour the museum gift shops for books, notecards, jewelry and show catalogs for the art lovers on your list.

At Love Texas Art in downtown Fort Worth, there’s an entire section of small works for sale, along with jewelry, pins, cards and more by local artists: Carol Benson’s Wrapped House, in wire, cotton, twine and latex paint, is available in two colors and designed to mount on a wall. $325 each Chrys, mounted embroidery works by Kait Batts, transcend traditional thinking about needlework. $140 each hoop Nancy Lamb’s much loved Fort Worth, a giclee print on paper, is a Cowtown classic. $425, unframed; $725, framed

This colorful Frida Kahlo pixel notebook contains 180-plus unlined pages. $14, Modern Shop, Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth

The catalog from the Amon Carter Museum of American Art’s current show, “Speaking with Light: Contemporary Indigenous Photography,” is a thoughtful read that would make a welcome gift.
